I’ve been “indicated”


I usually ignore the spam that I get (and I get a bunch), but I read one of them a bit more carefully:


We hereby inform you that your computer was scanned under the IP 194.90.37.141 . The contents of your computer were confiscated as an evidence, and you will be indicated.


Umm… I think that the author was probably looking for “indicted”.


(Note: Thanks to Keith who noted that I had mispelled “indicted” originally, without calling me a moreon)

    Yeah it would be nice to be able to embed a pic of my arse or a flash presentation of it with music from time to time. Embedding media is NOT what you want on any kind of user interactive forum.
